“If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s gonna be a one-term proposition.”
—President Obama, NBC interview, February 2009
Below are yet more graphs demonstrating that President Obama’s policies have failed and are making the economy worse. As such, the president cannot stand on his record and has regrettably turned to the politics of envy and division. In contrast, House Republicans’ Plan for America’s Job Creators offers common sense, pro-growth policies to give small businesses and entrepreneurs renewed confidence in our economy and to remove Washington as the roadblock to job creation. It’s time President Obama and the Democrat-led Senate stop blocking our bipartisan jobs bills.
